Earn while you learn

Sounds cool now.But It didnt click me when i was completing my education.Now,when I see the teenagers working while they are completing their education,I sometimes feel that I did not make proper use of time.I would have supported my family economically.But then,I also see some of them literally struggling maintaining the balance between their job and studies.Have you earned while you were learning?

At my first degree no. My schedule was hectic that a part time job will not fit. But at the first part of my 2nd degree I did have a job because my classes were all in the afternoon.

@deepaworld Maybe but maybe not. My working classmates was having tough times. They usually enrolled less subjects to juggle school and work.

@diosabella yes it's definitely a struggle and depends on what you are studying.If the syllabus is tough,then managing a job along with studies is next to impossible

Nope I haven't at all. It was impossible to get a job here when you are an undergraduate though fast food chains like McDonald's do hire students, they abuse them with very little salary and I think that isn't fair at all. I had a college insurance.

Never done that. it was not usual in our times. happy to see more youngsters do that. but one should always give preference to study first.

@deepaworld No it was not a matter of multitasking, he worked 8 am until 6 PM and then he had lessons from 8PM until 11 PM, a very little time to sleep and make school exercises.

Some of us were paid while in college, so in a sense, yes we were paid while we learned.

It is a good idea to earn when you are studying. However, when I was studying, there were not much opportunities or requirements for me to earn. I got job immediately after completing my graduation and after that there was no looking back. I am well settled now.
